Re: Guys HELP PLEASE!!!!!
I break in a new motor with the first gallon 20:1 mix, second gallon 24:1 mix, from there after I run 32:1 mix. 16:1 is a bit much oil and 32:1 is a bit light for break in IMHO. I stick on 32:1 mix because I would rather have a well lubricated motor and fouled plug than a dry dead motor. In my experience I don't get excessive smoke or oil dripping from the muffler (or fouled plugs for that matter) from running 32:1 mix.
And just for the record, running a mix with more oil will LEAN up your mix, not richen it (as the oil in the mix will displace gas, less gas means leaner mix).
